Thus, ISTP is a unique forum to facilitate and encourage the exchange of experiences and reflect on public education policies.
Over the two days, we will address three interrelated topics:
i) Schools at the centre of their communities, reflecting on what can policy-makers and the teaching profession do to strengthen links with communities and what are the implications for governance and funding;
ii) Pedagogies for the future, discussing how can education systems create the conditions for encouraging and supporting teachers to initiate, share, and evaluate innovative pedagogies, including new technologies;
iii) Teacher well-being, confidence, efficacy and effectiveness in order to debate if and how could governments, in partnership with teacher unions, create evidence-in-formed strategies on well-being and efficacy as part of their teacher policies.
